In the famous words of the legendary singer Tom Jones, “It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.” And just two years from now, the facade of the EDEN residential tower in Frankfurt am Main will be one of the greenest façade in the world. In EDEN’s case, the green, green grass of home takes the shape of vertical gardens.

It probably makes sense to begin at the beginning: Just what are these vertical gardens that everyone is getting so excited about, including architects, real estate aficionados and environmentalists, and how are they installed and maintained?

 

THE TALLEST VERTICAL GARDEN IN THE WORLD

In hotel lobbies, office foyers, multi-story car parks and shopping centers around the world, living walls, also known as vertical gardens, have been a feature for some time now. There has been a noticeable growth in the popularity of indoor living walls, and the facades of medium-high buildings can be equipped with plants of all kinds. But a complete high-rise residential building with a green living facade? According to Christiaan Bakker, specialist for green exterior wall systems at Sempergreen, the 98-meter EDEN residential tower in Frankfurt will be the first 70-meter-plus building in the world with a green facade.

 

This stunning high-rise apartment building, designed by the renowned international team at Jahn Architects, is adorned with a unique combination of vertical gardens and a filigree glass facade. In EDEN, state-of-the-art architecture forms a symbiosis with the power and beauty of nature in a way that has never been seen before in an ultra-modern high-rise.

 

WELCOME TO THE URBAN JUNGLE

The 27-story EDEN residential tower fits in perfectly with the city’s green philosophy and the facts speak for themselves: EDEN will feature a total of 186,000 plants over an area of almost 2,000 square meters (as 20% of the façade). Most of the plants will be planted on the building’s exterior facade, creating a striking and highly visible green wall that is sure to amaze passers-by and visitors to EDEN. In the lobby, a 37-square-meter living wall will create the feeling of an urban jungle in the heart of the city. Claudia Blum of Studio Architects Düsseldorf has also developed an interior design concept that integrates plants throughout the building. Her principal theme is nature, with other elements included to provide subtle, background accents. And when it comes to EDEN’s balconies, the living wall’s plants provide privacy and a genuine outdoor experience.

 

 

ENHANCING VALUE WITH VERTICAL GARDENS

EDEN’s vertical gardens are far more than just attractive architectural and design features. The green living facades also create a host of benefits for the tower’s residents (for example improvement of acoustics and sound emission), and the climate. Green facades absorb CO2 and particulate matter and provide a cooling effect and cleaner air as well as making a valuable contribution to maintaining the diversity of urban fauna. Green indoor walls ensure a healthy indoor climate, reduce noise levels and are flame-retardant. In offices, they even increase employee productivity.

 

As Christiaan Bakker from Sempergreen explains: “Vertical gardens make a significant contribution to the physical and psychological well-being of residents.” They even extend the life of a building’s facade. These numerous advantages increase the overall value of the property.

 

SOPHISTICATED PLANT CARE TECHNOLOGY

When it comes to looking after the plants, vertical garden experts have developed efficient solutions in recent years. Tending to the plants’ needs is now largely handled by automatic systems: Irrigation and nutrients are supplied with the aid of small drip lines and an irrigation computer. The plants can be monitored around the clock from an off-site control center. The technological sophistication of the system is certainly impressive. Christiaan Bakker explains: “The irrigation system installed on the roof automatically supplies water and fertilizer to the plants for a few seconds at a time. At night, the system pauses because the plants rest. Sensors in the panels monitor moisture levels and allow us to check fill levels via computer.” The vertical gardens even have their own frost protection system. As soon as there is a risk of frost, the system switches itself off and ensures that the water drains off before it can freeze in the pipes.

 

CREATING GREEN URBAN SPACES

With such a truly innovative project as EDEN, it was important that the architects and green facade specialists worked in perfect partnership. The considerable weight of the planting system, the complex network of water pipes and the space for drainage all needed to be expertly integrated into the building’s planning from day one. In addition, the plants are chosen with the utmost care. In the case of EDEN, the plants are individually selected for the project and planted a year in advance on precision engineered panels before being attached to the building with the help of a gondola. “Given the height of the building, the installation is of course more time-consuming than with other green facades,” explains Bakker. EDEN is truly a project of superlatives. For the green facade specialists at Sempergreen, the vertical gardens are more than just a business: “Our cities are growing and we need to make more space for greenery. Vertical gardens are an ideal, and very necessary, solution as we seek to create more green spaces!”

 

FRANKFURT: METROPOLITAN VIBE IN HARMONY WITH GREEN SERENITY

There is hardly another city in the world so perfectly suited to the combination of vertical gardens and high-rise architecture than Frankfurt. The metropolis on the Main River is rightly famous for its exciting skyline. Urban greenery is also deeply rooted in the city’s DNA – in the truest sense of the word. One of Frankfurt’s preeminent garden architects, Franz Heinrich Siesmayer, created the famous Palmengarten 200 years ago. In total, he is credited with having designed and landscaped more than 300 parks. Greenery has always played an important role in Frankfurt’s urban planning: the miles of green belt running around the city’s core and more than 40 urban parks make a valuable contribution to creating a balanced urban climate. More than 52% of the city’s urban area is green.

Art-Invest Real Estate and Dukelease Properties today launch its latest residential development, 101 on Cleveland Street. The luxury development, comprising 88 residences will showcase a new proposition for Fitzrovia, one of W1 London’s finest locations in which to live.

 

101 on Cleveland Street follows Dukelease Properties’ local success with previous high-end schemes, such as Beau House, Artisan and Oxford Street, and marks Art-Invest Real Estate’s first venture into the UK property market.

 

Richard Leslie, CEO of Dukelease Properties comments: “We are excited to be bringing 101 on Cleveland Street to Asia at this time. Fitzrovia is now firmly on the map as one of London’s premier and most competitive destinations and we are looking forward to showcasing all it has to offer through our development with Art-Invest Real Estate.”

 

Both companies believe the Prime Central London market is resilient and that new developments have a firm place in the market. Despite the uncertain economic and political backdrop, JLL’s latest forecasts anticipate prices in 2019 will rise almost immediately by 1% with future growth to 2.5% by 2020.

Mandy Wong, Head of International Residential Property Services of JLL comments: “JLL’s latest forecasts assume a Brexit deal is agreed and that a strong upturn in values ensues. We anticipate a boost in confidence to the Prime Central London market in 2019, once the EU deal is fully approved. In turn, the greater certainty will immediately boost demand from domestic and international buyers, with the latter benefitting from the short-term currency advantage.”

 

The Scheme

101 on Cleveland Street comprises 88 beautifully designed apartments, each with their own balcony. Spreading across two buildings, a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments will be delivered in Q4 2021, alongside four premium penthouses with private rooftop terraces.

 

Residents will have exclusive access to a suite of amenities including a gym, screening room, dining room, lounge and sauna. Landscaped gardens will adorn the podium level of the building and bring to life the exterior architecture.

 

Location

Fitzrovia is emerging as the new and desirable destination in Prime Central London. Bordered by Oxford Street to the South and Regent’s Park to the North, 101 on Cleveland Street takes prime position in the heart of Fitzrovia and will be the first residential offering of its kind in recent years.

 

The development sits within easy access to a number of tube stations, just a short walk from Great Portland Street, Goodge Street, Warren Street and Tottenham Court Road to name a few. Tottenham Court Road will also benefit from the highly-anticipated high speed Crossrail service next year where residents will be able to reach the City to the east in five minutes and Heathrow to the west in 28 minutes, enhancing the global connectivity of the area. London King’s Cross St Pancras is within easy access, perfect for international business meetings and weekends away.

 

University College London and The University of Westminster are within 7 minutes’ walk of the development. Moreover, The London School of Economics is a 15 minutes’ away, joined by King’s College London which is 17 minutes’ away. RADA studios and Sotheby’s Institute of Art are also within walking distance.

 

Lifestyle

A hub of restaurants and world-class amenities sit on the doorstep of 101 on Cleveland Street. New restaurants, hotels and workspaces are contributing to this corner of London fast becoming a premier destination. Leading restaurants in the area include Michelin starred LIMA London and Pied a Terre, alongside Señor Ceviche, Ottolenghi’s latest opening ROVI, Kyseri and Serge et le Phoque, which join long-time favourite hotels, Charlotte Street Hotel and The Mandrake Hotel.

 

Moreover, prominent workspaces including the acclaimed Mortimer House and the new women’s only member’s club The Allbright are accompanied by prestigious gyms including F45, FRAME, Psycle and Define London.

 

Ali Abbas, UK Managing Partner at Art-Invest Real Estate comments, “We are excited to be combining our experienced investment and development capability with Dukelease Properties, to create a unique destination in this one-acre site in Fitzrovia, London, W1.”

 

Exhibition details:

HONG KONG, 20 May 2019 – In June, a collection of seven striking riverside Townhouses will launch for sale at London City Island, EcoWorld Ballymore’s culturally-inspired new neighbourhood on Leamouth Peninsula.

The Townhouses are London City Island’s largest and most individually-designed homes, offering buyers luxurious and contemporary living with uninterrupted views across the River Lea. Marked by a vibrant red brick façade and situated on the east of the development, the Townhouses each have three bedrooms, expansive living spaces, a secluded ground front terrace and private parking. The largest of the properties has six storeys, connected by a private lift, and features a beautiful private roof terrace for al fresco dining and entertainment.

 

The Townhouse interiors have been designed by Amos & Amos, a London-based interior architecture and design studio. Working closely with EcoWorld Ballymore, Amos & Amos have created a concept that makes reference to the traditional townhouse whilst appealing to the modern buyer. The homes’ open plan rooms and hallways create connected living spaces with sleek crittall-style glazed partitions which flood the spaces with natural light.

The Townhouse kitchens and living areas respond to East London’s industrial past; the kitchens - the heart of each home – include a striking polished concrete island and black stained rough-cut oak dining table as focal points, complemented by bespoke cabinetry and brushed brass tapware and white-oiled oak flooring. The living rooms, in comparison, include low marble plinths and contemporary design features, leaving space for large scale art and sculptures. Amos & Amos incorporate a variety of bespoke fixtures and fittings throughout the Townhouses, including faraday-pattern metalwork and tan leather that reflect the area’s maritime heritage and identity of the Island, with industrial bathtubs and matt black brassware that are design features in their own right.

 

On 1 and 2 June, London City Island’s Townhouse collection will be released to the open market. There are three six-storey and four four-storey Townhouses available for purchase, all with three bedrooms, with prices starting from £1.45 million (HKD14.50 million).

 

The Townhouses are located adjacent to English National Ballet’s new London headquarters which is set to open later this year, placing buyers at the heart of an island of art and creativity. Each Townhouse is just a stone’s throw from the Island’s iconic red footbridge which spans the River Lea and provides high-speed connectivity to central London and beyond via Canning Town Station. Having been established as London’s newest lifestyle hub for art and culture, new residents are set to benefit from a variety of amenities at London City Island, including independent cafes, shops, restaurants and on-site galleries, it is very much more than just a place to live.

 

Jaki Amos, Co-Founder at Amos & Amos, said: “The Townhouses at London City Island marked a real opportunity to create unique design-led living spaces which build upon the Island’s boldness and creativity, whilst simultaneously referencing the site’s rich industrial past. We have worked closely with EcoWorld Ballymore across a number of design projects at London City Island and it has been both exciting and rewarding to see the development evolve, with the Townhouses being the latest design landmark to be introduced to the Island.”

 

Anita Hughes, Managing Director at EcoWorld UK, commented: “We are delighted to launch the Townhouses at London City Island to the open market. The launch is a real milestone for Phase Two which continues to evolve at pace and will soon include the opening of English National Ballet’s and the London Film School’s new headquarters.”

 

John Mulryan, Group Managing Director at Ballymore, added: “Our vision for London City Island is to create an architecturally-striking development with culture and creativity at its heart; the Townhouses are an example of the diverse and unique living spaces on offer on the island and set the bar for homes of their type. We are confident that they will generate interest from potential buyers across the spectrum.”

 

Exhibition details:

Date: 1 & 2 June, 2019 (Sat & Sun)

Time: 11:00am – 7:00pm

Limited collection of apartments unveiled at White City Living, located in London’s central Zone 2

 

HONG KONG, 14 May 2019 – St James, part of the Berkeley Group, has launched the Bowery at White City Living, the centrepiece of the major west London opportunity area. The Bowery will comprise 40 one- bedroom and 20 two-bedroom apartments, each complete with its own private balcony. Wellness is at the heart of the Bowery, with residents benefiting from direct access to the scheme’s Home Club facilities, all of which are located within the building.

Once complete, White City Living will create a brand-new destination with over 1,800 homes set amongst eight-acres of open space, including a five-acre public park. Situated in a central Zone 2 location, White City is set to become the Capital’s brightest new neighbourhood, home to BBC worldwide and the largest shopping centre in Europe: Westfield London. The scheme is also located next to London’s most prestigious and renowned educational institutions, including Imperial College London’s new campus. An array of popular bars and restaurants are also opposite the development and close by at Westfield London.

Poised for growth

White City Living will offer residents the opportunity to invest in a popular area of London. JLL forecasts the housing prices in West London’s prime location will rise 13% in the next five years. Furthermore, Sterling is also anticipated to appreciate against the US Dollar by 15% by 2021, making White City Living an investment that is likely to deliver favourable returns for buyers down the line.

Nick Whitten, Research Director at JLL in UK, said: “London remains one of the world’s premier investment locations. Alongside the key fundamentals, London also boasts a world leading cultural and leisure offering. It is the most culturally diverse city in the world with more than 250 languages spoken and is one of the world’s tourist capitals, welcoming circa 20m visitors per year.

“White City is also extremely well connected and the area attracts a broad base of residents. There are currently over 25,000 renters in the surrounding area that earn over £60,000 per annum, illustrating the underlying demand for homes. This demand will grow as White City Living further transforms into a world- leading hub of research, innovation and education, fashion, retail, media and entertainment.”

A prime location for education with unparalleled connectivity

White City Living is uniquely positioned next to some of London’s top schools and universities. Imperial College London is consistently ranked a top 10 university in the world and is developing a new 23-acre campus next to the development, whilst UCL, LSE and King’s College are all just 30 minutes away.

Furthermore, prestigious schools such as St Paul’s and St Paul’s Girls are on White City Living’s doorstep within a 10 minute drive, while Eton and Harrow can be reached within 30 minutes’ drive.

The development is only two minutes’ walk from Westfield London, the largest shopping centre in Europe, which features luxury boutiques and over 750 brands. Other London retail favourites are also within easy reach, including Selfridges and Harrods which are both a 20-minute drive away or 12 minutes on the underground. The area is further complemented by the prime residential neighbourhoods of Holland Park and Notting Hill, both of which are within walking distance of White City Living.

Furthermore, White City Living boasts exceptional transportation links. White City and Wood Lane Underground stations are located next to the development’s entrance and are served by the Central, Hammersmith & City and Circle lines, allowing residents to reach Marble Arch in 10 minutes and the West End in 14 minutes.

Thoughtful design with the finest amenities

Homes at the Bowery have been thoughtfully designed and residents will benefit from smart interior spaces that are generously proportioned and bright, with many apartments offering views over the private Magnolia Garden. Apartments within the Bowery are finished to the highest specification, including kitchens with integrated Miele appliances and underfloor heating and comfort cooling.

As an extension of their home, residents at White City Living will have direct access to a wealth of facilities, which have been specifically tailored to the development. Many of these amenities can be found across the lower ground, ground and first floor of the Bowery, providing residents with direct access to the gym, spa, and swimming pool with adjoining sun terrace. Additionally, the Bowery benefits from being connected to Belvedere Row where the remaining residents’ amenities can be found, these include a private dining room, two 12-seater cinema rooms, a multi-purpose entertainment suite and a fully- equipped business lounge and meeting rooms.

The green centrepiece of a new destination

White City Living will feature eight-acres of gardens, designed by award-winning landscape architect, Murdoch Wickham. This will include water features and a five-acre public park, which will create a focal point for the neighbourhood. With planting for every season in the Magnolia, Autumn, Central and Spring Gardens, White City Living will feature contrasting and complementing colours all year round.

First residents at White City Living are expected to move in this summer. Prices at the Bowery start from £735,000 (about HKD 7.5 million).
